Feel like people here would like this :)

The Aspero is an awesome bike but I do wish it had some sort of downtube storage or the like. So this holiday I made a carbon fiber box that sits right under the water bottle mount. Has a boa dial for closure. Can fit a fair bit of things like CO2+inflater, tools, chain tool and dynaplugs 8)
You need to bring that over to the Cervelo Aspero Enthusiasts Facebook group. There are probably guys there that would pay for one of those.

I'll leave it up to you to figure out the other 30%. If you are in any way offended, that's on you.

Do you guys know where to find the front derailleur mount here in Europe?

Idk if anyone else has tried, but I fit a 110bcd Quarq with a Force Dub crank, and a 44t Absolute Black oval ring, and it cleared with about 3mm to spare. No spacers, or modifications. Bolted right on.

Is 44 the largest 1x chain ring that will fit? I have the 2022 Aspero.

Some have fit 46t. It depends on your crank/spider/chainring combination. A 44t is as big as will fit on a Force/Red AXS setup.

Are you able to measure the max saddle height for your bike? I have a 61cm Aspero on order and I am trying to figure out if it is going to fit me. Trying to get an 825mm saddle height. Also, did you end up getting a longer stem? I am 6'6 so trying to figure out what is going to work for me.
825mm saddle height is no issue on the 61 or even size 58 frame. I am 200cm/6'7 and my saddle height is 870mm. This is only possible with a 400mm seatpost. I guess 840mm is maximum height on sz 58.

Regarding stem. This depends on your preferred riding position on gravel. I have 110mm stem, and about 2cm shorter reach in total (to hoods), compared to my road bike.

Cheers! I have the 61cm and don't have any issues with the saddle height which is a breath of fresh air coming from proprietary seatpost designs.

Just a quick update bit of info. Some of you might have remembered I bought a new R5 stem for my Aspero5 build. Well I finally took delivery of the bike, and installed the stem. The front faceplate of the stem is different, and requires a different plastic insert piece if you want to run the Cervelo computer/headlight mount that comes with the Aspero5. The piece does come with the R5, and doesn't seem to be available seperately. I'm going to try to aquire one, but I may have to go another route. For now I am using an old Bontrager Node computer mount I modified for use with a Garmin forever ago. It's a lightweight solution, but it's not as clean, and won't hold a headlight so I'm definitely going to do something else. The Aspero5 stem, and the R5 stem are slightly different, and you can't use the Aspero5 faceplate, which is what I was planning to do.
